Poem | The Dark Horses

Lovely but Vicious,

Dark but gorgeous,

Are they really

The horses

Who come in the darkness?


The horses

With the human heads?

Or the horses with

Wings like angels?

I don’t really know.

But when they come

Come like a tornado,

Blowing sands behind,

Making the wind fanatical

With the neighs

Of those valiant horses.


My soul trembles

With the imagination

Of the ferocity

Of upcoming moment,

But still I must admit

I remain always

Fervent for the vision

Of those dark horses

Flight in the dusk


They come in my dream

Make me sweat with

Excitement and fierce

But I must admit

I keenly wait for them

For days months and years.

I hate them

But I love them too!

Good Morning Cupid...Thought-provoking prose gyrating from fanatical winds, to sweating with fierce excitement...the whole reading as a dream interrupted and a longing for its return...Freud has said that dreams of horses, particularly powerful horses, suggests a sexual frustration...Nicely expressed for an ESL writer...Thank you for sharing...Larry

I didn't see it as something sexual but I did see it as the coming of Christ, well written and I certainly enjoyed. :)

Thank you very much AEvans for stopping by and leaving such an encouraging comment. The poet tries to express some feelings which eagerly wait to come out to light but how far the poet succeeds depends on views of the readers. Readers are always on the upper hand, and sometimes they might show new angle of view to the poet!
